The traditional ways of making pottery start with they clay that is cast into the handmade molds. Once dried, the mold is removed and the first kiln firing takes place. After the first firing, an artist paints the piece. It is then glazed and fired for a last time. These are unique, beautiful and very functional.

The clay is mined form the mountains surrounding the city, following the traditions of the first potters who came Guanajuato generations ago. Women artisans hand-paint the unfired ceramics while men work the kilns. Each piece is a unique piece of art that captures the flavor and artistry of the region.
